University of Sydney Reviews
First, the university itself has a twist of both modern and historical building. It is located in a really beautiful environment and has many gardens, old sandstone building and a huge ground. The teacher-student relation was said to be so very strong and most importantly was the huge range varieties and diversity of subjects that an individual will be sure to find something that you be their cup of tea and the subjects are specific.
Jason B. Commerce says: “The size of the university, ease of access via a wide means of transport, the social life, the old-school buildings that make good photo opportunities, diverse range of people. Great reputation in the workplace.”
The academic seems to be very well, and courses had a significant number of core units which give an adequate amount of knowledge that a student needs to complete the degree. But, the downside is that the timetable is not flexible at all. The timetable that’s given, you also can choose either a day off or 2*5 hour period. But can choose to either go to the timetabling room in the first week of a semester or also can see a list of available classes and click to enrol in that particular time slot on a first come, first serve basis. The class size seems to be just fine, and also the teachers are excellent teachers and students finds the class to be interesting and very helping, lectures are said to be of very high quality, although the study material might be quite expensive, it is not always vital for the completion of the course.

There were lots of university of Sydney reviews which were good, but many students were complaining about the housings and food over there. There are large varieties of food found and also offer vegetarian and healthy diets, same goes to housing, they have pretty decent housing available, and both accommodation and food give student discounts. But that said, it is still very expensive. If you’re living on your own, it can be quite expensive. Students go west for cheaper rents, says has more affordable groceries and also cheap transportation. And for food students go to new towns which are famous amongst the student for cheap and yummy food also Thai food are said to be extremely affordable and is very delicious, and the amount the get for that price was such a great deal.
The overall reviews were great. But you just cannot win it all, so most of the complaints were about how expensive it was, also keeping this in mind that it is a very prestigious university. And the food and housing were said to be quite expensive for the students even if the discount were allowed. Parking was said to be not sufficient also the timetable was rigid. Students also complained about poor quality found in the faculties and administrative.
So, this is a brutally honest review about USYD. Remember it’s not always rainbows and the sunshine all the time. There is always a flaw in even a masterpiece. So be wise and choose and understand yourself if it’s worth it or not.
